Vivek Ramaswamy Holds Strong in VP Race, Confirms Presence at Atlanta Debate


Vivek Ramaswamy, a former GOP presidential candidate and entrepreneur, confirms he will attend the debate in Atlanta between former President Donald Trump (left) and President Joe Biden on Thursday.

Ramaswamy explained Trump’s unification plan:

President Trump will unite the country in a new way. Success unifies, excellence unifies, and so fixing our border crisis, and growing our economy, aren’t just policy solutions. They are steps towards reuniting America.

He also said that he thinks the CNN debate will take place in a 3-on-1 format:

I will be there with him, and I am looking forward to the trip. But I am confident that he has led this country well. He led it in its first two years in battling a Russia-collusion hoax as well as an impeachment sham. Make no mistake, if he can do this, he will be able to handle himself in a 3-on-1 discussion. But I am confident that President Trump can still handle himself when he is debating with three people and not just one.

Ramaswamy spoke with John Berman on CNN Wednesday morning about the debate that will take place Thursday.

He said:

I told President Trump, and I will tell you too, that I give Donald Trump credit for agreeing to a Fox News debate in Alabama, with 3,000 live audience members. That would be the equivalent of Joe Biden accepting a debate hosted by CNN in Atlanta, without a live crowd. You have to be able to show up if you want to lead the nation. And that’s what Donald Trump is doing.

Why is this newsworthy? Trump announced that his Vice Presidential nominee will be in Atlanta for the debate.

Ramaswamy will not be the only person at the watch party. Doug Burgum, Dr. Ben Carson, and Sens. Marco Rubio, R-FL, and J.D. Vance (R OH), are also possible candidates.

Vivek had been out of the running for a while, but now he is one of the frontrunners, along with Burgum, Vance, and Carson.

Here were the odds for VP a little over a week before:

Trump would choose someone who hasn’t been mentioned in a while and the person people least expect.
